Robb Alvey's 30 Pounds in 30 Days - 2008!

Postby robbalvey » Wed Nov 12, 2008 1:54 pm


Hey everyone!

Some of you guys may remember THIS thread from last year when I went on my 30 pounds in 30 days diet.

The end result? 22.5 pounds in 25 days.

And then we went on our holiday cruise and then all the TPR summer trips came around and thanks to my lack of any self control I'm back to square one again!

However, this year things are a bit DIFFERENT!

Last year I really only had a short term goal, but I now realize while that did great for me I also need a long term goal. I also have hired a personal trainer to help me out. I would like to introduce you to all to...


That's right! Wii Fit is going to track my progress every day and help me go from fatty to FABULOUS!

So many people have asked "Does that thing actually WORK???" so now it's time to give it a try. Obviously I'm dieting and doing other exercise as well, but this will be a good test to see if Wii Fit really can help.

I need as much support from you guys as well and if anyone else here has Wii Fit and wants to play along, post pictures, etc, please feel free to do so!

So here goes....

"Robb Alvey's 30 Pounds in 30 Days - 2008 Edition! Guest Starring Wii Fit!"

I will be posting pictures every day (unless of course we are gone for a day or two) and this thread will serve as my "blog" so to speak on the progress.

Short Term Goal - 30 pounds by December 12th, 2008.
Long Term Goal - 50 pounds by June 1st, 2009.

The short term goal is because we are leaving for our holiday cruise on December 12th and I need to go on a crash diet for that trip. The long term goal is to make sure that I keep up with it once I get back (I assume I'll also gain some weight back on that trip) and look hot and sexy for 2009's TPR trips.

So who's with me? C'mon everyone! Let's DO THIS!!!
Hello Wii Fit! I would like you to meet TPR!
Spoken like a true personal trainer...Well, I'm not much into breakfast, but I'll have something simple and probably stop by Starbucks on the way to work (Venti Pumpkin Spice Latte - Non Fat, No Whip in case you all are interested in today's coffee order!)
Yes, yes, I know...I'm off balance...can we just get on with this please?
Well, Wii Fit, you certainly have a nice way of putting things! Ok, we need to take care of this!
Yay! At least I'm 1.5 lbs lighter than my weigh in yesterday! I've got a head start!
My Wii Fit age is....40!!! I don't know why I look so happy...that's OLDER than me!!!
Why did KidTums step on the TV?
Ok, let's do some exercise. How about some Hoola Hoops? There's Elissa and Jahan throwing hoops at me! Stop that guys!!!
Damn that's a lot of spins!
Yay! Who ever thought working out could be so much fun?
Now we will try some skiing!
Damn, maybe I should try out for the Olympics!
So here is the most important the moment I'm at 260lbs. Let's see how we do tomorrow!

Good luck Rob! I hope you see your goal...just remember the slower you loose, the slower it takes to come back.

I lost 20lbs in the past 1 1/2. What I found to be most helpful (probably has something to do with my mild case of OCD) is to wear a pedometer and make sure that I hit 70K steps per week. It is a challenge especially if you work at a desk all day.

Good luck!

I Love Eli Manning!

Great idea on how to loose wait Robb! It looks really fun too.
How much did that cost?

^ If you can find them in the stores (it took us months to find) you can pick them up for about $80 I believe.

Let me just say that this is awesome! I have asked for the WII fit this year for christmas and this makes me want one even more(in a non-greedy way)

Robb, Good luck on this, and seeing from how well you did last year, you'll most likely do better with this one since working out is now made FUN!

Post Script: I never got to Thank-You for the wonderful day of Behemoth Bash that you and Elissa put together! It was fantastic and I cannot wait to join one of your trips in the future!

Robb, you've inspired me to start up on my wii fit plan again. It was going strong for about 2 weeks and then after I got back from Florida, I had no desire to keep up with it anymore. In the 2 weeks I did use it though, I lost about 8 lbs overall, and that was on 30 min (credits) of hula hoops, step, and punching, plus some balance exercises here and there.

It's great to see this back. I think it gives us all, overweight or not, some inspiration to be a bit healthier.

Wii need video! :lolr: I want to see you doing those yoga moves!

Seriously, I'm rooting for you. Things that are fun to do, you do more often so if the Wii is doing that for you great. I bought the guy I'm dating a Dance Dance Revolution mat to do the same thing. He said that's how he lost weight before so he was happy I was able to set it up for him.
